While CW hit "The Vampire Diaries" was previously announced for a 7th season this fall, one star will NOT be returning.
Leading lady Nina Dobrev released a statement this afternoon confirming she and her character Elena will NOT be returning:
"I've just spent the most beautiful weekend on Lake Lanier in Georgia with my own TVD Family, the cast and crew of The Vampire Diaries. I want to be the first to tell you that it wasn't just a holiday celebration, it was a goodbye party,"
"I always knew I wanted Elena's story to be a six-season adventure, and within those six years I got the journey of a lifetime. I was a human, a vampire, a doppelganger, a crazy immortal, a doppelganger pretending to be human, a human pretending to be a doppelganger. I got kidnapped, killed, resurrected, tortured, cursed, body-snatched, was dead and undead, and there's still so much more to come before the season finale in May. Elena fell in love not once, but twice, with two epic soulmates, and I myself made some of the best friends I'll ever know and built an extended family I will love forever."
Rumors circulated earlier today when Instagram photos surfaced that insinuated that Dobrev was indeed leaving, hence why Nina addressed those in her statement.
Are you guys surprised that Nina won't be back?
